What is Backyard Bumble Bee Count?

Join us for the 5th Annual Backyard Bumble Bee Count!  Backyard Bumble Bee Count is an iNatualist citizen science project that will help the various organizations and agencies committed to conserving the endangered rusty patched bumble bee and all bumble bees.  Anyone, anywhere with an iNaturalist account can take part in this project that will help document bumble bee occurrence and abundance during peak times in the eastern United States. 


Interested in joining? If you have an iNaturalist account, learn how to join.  If you don't have an account, joining is easy!  Check out this video to get started! 

Each sighting and count submitted during the Backyard Bumble Bee Count helps researchers learn more about how bumble bees are doing and how to protect them and the environment we share.
